My Attempt at Carving Mango Flowers

July 31, 2011 | By | Comments (6)

A few weeks ago, on a visit to Coney Island (yes, the same Nathan’s Hotdog excursion) I bought a five dollar mango. I typically wouldn’t pay that much for a piece of fruit, but it was carved like a flower, and came on a stick, and I am a sucker.

There were 2 women with pretty substantial knives just carving away, each ripe mango opening perfectly like a flower. They made it look so easy that I was sure I could do it as well myself.

And,  I need some practice: a little mangled, but no less tasty.

What’s the last thing you ate on a stick?
